Petit Collage’s new pop-out and color sets have an added twist that sets them apart from their previously released pop-out sets — kids can now color the characters and the scene themselves. Available in a pirate or castle theme, each set encourages little hands to punch out the shapes, design and decorate the various pieces, and assemble the set (and then, of course, comes playtime itself!) Both sets come with five colored pencils and a sheet of stickers and are printed with vegetable inks on recycled paper. We’re going to stock up on both for a rainy day or “What do we do now?” activity.

+ Pirate-themed pop-out and color set $11.00

+ Castle-themed pop-out and color set $11.00

VIDEO: 6 year-old inventors charm President Obama with their LEGO robot at the White House science fair

by 03/25/15   filed under: green kids, kid friendly, news

While making his rounds at the annual White House Science Fair, President Obama ran into just about the cutest group of young inventors ever, and luckily, it was caught on tape. Five adorable “supergirls,” from a Tulsa Girl Scout Troop, among the youngest to present at this year’s fair, showed off their LEGO “robot” to the president. The girls’ robot, a battery-powered page turner to help people who are paralyzed or have arthritis was clearly a hit. One of the young girls, determined to engage the President, asked if he’d ever had a brainstorming session, like her and her friends had in order to come up with their robot idea. Barely missing a beat, and clearly amused with the little girl’s question, Obama replied, “I have had a couple brainstorming sessions. But I didn’t come up with anything this good! I mean, I came up with things like, you know, health care. It turned out OK.” After kudos to the girls and a sweet group hug, President Obama moved on to the next group of kids but not before proclaiming of the girls’ display, “Girls change the world, I like that!”
